Now I am attempting to add an additional disk and I am receiving the following error: Jun 4 00:42:51 New-NAS notifier: dd: /dev/da14: Operation not permitted Jun 4 00:42:51 New-NAS manage.py: [middleware.exceptions:37] [MiddlewareError: Unable to GPT format the disk "da14"] I am not being allowed to format the disk. The UEFI specification does not allow hidden sectors on GPT-formatted disks. Microsoft reserves a chunk of disk space using this MSR partition type, to provide an alternative data storage space for such software components which previously may have used hidden sectors on MBR formatted disks.

Storage devices that your host supports can use either the master boot record (MBR) format or the GUID partition table (GPT) format. If you create a new VMFS5 datastore, the device is formatted with GPT. The GPT format enables you to create datastores larger than 2TB and up to 64TB for a single extent.
